An issue that comes up every so often and always leaves me looking for a citation is the long settled rule that a corporation cannot represent itself. Thanks to the Third DCA in Opella vs. Bayview, Case No. 3D09-2921 (Fla. 3d DCA Nov. 24, 2010), I now have my case:
Szteinbaum v. Kaes Inversiones y Valores, C.A., 476 So. 2d 247, 248 (Fla. 3d DCA 1985) (“It is well recognized that a corporation, unlike a natural person, cannot represent itself and cannot appear in a court of law without an attorney.”).
